What you need to know
When you are dealing with agencies and organisations, you will often be asked for personal information.
Some people find it helpful to have a list of personal information written down, ready for when it is needed.
If you are asking for help for both you and your family, you will need details of all the people who live with you as well.
Take care to spell names and words carefully.
You should take special care to keep this information safe and locked away with your ID.
If you are missing some information and leave gaps, some agencies or organisations will find it hard to give you help.
